Currently, I have selected 50 questions per page and the pagination bar seem to be too far down the page. Is there a way to make the pagination bar appear on top of the answers list? And the sorting option is also not available. Is there a way to apply sorting on the results so that I can sort the results by date?
As you tagged this question as feature-request I don't feel this feature is required because just by pressing End or Ctrl+End you can go to the end of the page and select the next page.
Why on earth you want to sort questions by date? How can you determine that the questions on the particular date would be helpful to you or you can answer the questions which is asked on particular date?
But off-course the search feature is available on Stack Overflow. Where you can search (in other word filter not sort) for particular tag, user, word etc.
